Final Analysis

More from Go Joe Bruin

The most important thing the UCLA Bruins have going for them is the fact that they now have depth. This changes everything. The back court will be supported with young talent, the front court is deep which will translate into less time on the floor for the starters and help save their energy when needed late in games.

Though the starting front court might be a bit shaky at first, they should have a chance to really build their chemistry early in the season. What will help that is a deep bench where they can bring in Bolden, Olesinski and Okwarabizie.

The back court should also be very good. Though we call it a draw compared to last season, if the Bruins can get their game plan in order, they could be better than last season’s back court even before they enter Pac-12 Conference play.
